Britons Were Lied to During Brexit Campaign – Schaeuble

German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Friday that Britons were lied to during the campaign before the Brexit referendum last year and he lashed out at those behind the ‘Out’ campaign for not taking responsibility when they won.

Speaking at an event for family-run companies on the first anniversary of the Brexit vote, Schaeuble said: “In the Brexit campaign, the Britons were endlessly lied to and deceived and when they happened to be successful, the ones who did that ran away because they said they can’t take responsibility for that.”
